A former Weber County juvenile court bailiff was arraigned Friday on a forcible sexual abuse charge involving a juvenile.

Marc Lindshield appeared before 2nd Circuit Judge Brent West. Lindshield waived his right to a preliminary hearing and is scheduled to enter a plea to the second-degree felony charge on May 9 before 2nd District Judge Ronald O. Hyde.Lindshield was suspended from his job when the investigation began.

City Prosecutor Dan Garner is handling the case because of a possible conflict of interest if the Weber County attorney's office took the case involving a former employee.

The sexual abuse allegedly occurred on July 26. Lindshield could be sentenced to serve up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
